New York attorney general seeks to dissolve NRA over ‘misuse of funds’

New York
New York’s attorney general on Thursday filed a lawsuit aimed at dissolving the National Rifle Association (NRA) over alleged financial mismanagement.
Letitia James said the powerful pro-gun advocacy organisation had diverted millions of dollars from its charitable mission for personal use by its leaders, including its head Wayne LaPierre, who spent it on trips to the Bahamas, private jets and expensive meals.
The state’s top prosecutor also said NRA officials had awarded contracts to the financial gain of close associates and family, and appeared to dole out contracts to former staff in order to buy their silence.
